    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    Enjoy Highland Park 12 year old Whisky with our a la Carte Menu through October

    Highland Park's spectacular 12-Year-Old expression had a stylish make-over in 2017. Known as, Viking Honour the Orcadian single malt remains the same - delectable as ever...

    The heart and soul of Highland Park, Viking Honour is a perfect harmony of aromatic smoky peat, sweet heather honey and rich fruit cake.

     

    Story

    Viking Honour reflects the unique culture of its Island of origin Orkney. Although part of Scotland it was first belonging to a vast Viking kingdom. At Highland Park, they honour the spirit of their Viking ancestors, sharing their pride, integrity and fierce independence. This is done by distilling their award-winning whisky to the same exacting standards introduced in 1798 by their founder, Magnus Eunson, a descendant of those early Viking settlers.

    "I am a reflection of my ancestors and values. I keep them close and continue to learn, to pass on those values to future generations. My name is all I truly have. Let it be a legacy of honour." Old Viking Saying
